Nickelback's Chad Kroeger recalls the words of caution he received at the end of the cycle for 2001's "Silver Side Up"—a five-times-platinum juggernaut that launched three hit singles including the monster "How You Remind Me."

"A lot of different people told us that 'Silver Side Up' was the biggest record we'll ever have," Kroeger says, "that we'll never, ever have another big record like that again and our career would probably decline and then we'd probably just trail off and that would be the end of Nickelback. I didn't want to accept that. I didn't want to accept that we couldn't make a better record than 'Silver Side Up.' "

Thanks to "All the Right Reasons," Kroeger and his bandmates don't have to.

Nickelback's fifth album, released Oct. 4, 2005, has become a phenomenon that's not only eclipsed "Silver Side Up" but is arguably the biggest rock album of the century so far. It's been in the top 30 of The Billboard 200 for 102 consecutive weeks and is currently No. 7. The last artist in that rarefied position was fellow Canadian Shania Twain, whose 1997 release "Come On Over" spent its first 123 weeks in the top 30.

During the course of its run, "All the Right Reasons" has also notched a head-spinning array of accomplishments that have contributed to its longevity. The album is six-times-platinum in the United States, with more than 8 million copies sold worldwide. After debuting at No. 1 with first-week sales of 325,000, it's never sold fewer than 25,000 copies in a given week and has enjoyed significant spikes during each of the last two holiday seasons. A two-disc special edition of the album released in July has also bolstered its sales life.

It has spun off seven multiformat singles—"Photograph," "Animals," "Savin' Me," "Far Away," "If Everyone Cared," "Side of a Bullet" and the current "Rockstar"; five of those scaled the top 40 charts, making Nickelback the first band in Nielsen BDS history to achieve that feat. All five of the group's videos hit No. 1 on VH1's playlist and power rotation on MTV. The group has sold more than 7 million singles downloads and more than 5 million ringtones.

"All the Right Reasons" snagged the American Music Award for favorite pop/rock album and helped the quartet to three Billboard Music Awards in 2006 and a pair of Juno Awards in Canada. And on the road, Nickelback played more than 200 shows for 3 million-plus fans.
